#13456 new enhancement

Structure/clean the main menu

Description (last modified by michael2402)

The menu is pretty crowded at the moment.

We can merge duplicate actions that can be combined in one dialog:

  1. Search / Search by preset
  2. Save as / Export to GPX
  3. Download from OSM / Download from Overpass / Download Object

We can remove functionality you rarely need (and you can get otherwise if you need it):

  1. Copy coordinates actions

And we can move menu items:

  1. Upload selection -> Selection menu
  2. Update selection -> Seleciton menu
  3. Advanced Info + History -> Data menu (?)
  4. Jump to position -> Two items up and name it Zoom to coordinates...

Restructure the Tools menu (since I never find what I search there...):

  1. Node: Add Node..., Move Node..., merge, UnGlue ways
  2. Node geometries: Align, Distribute, Orthogonalize
  3. Way creation: Follow, create circle
  4. Way: Reverse, Simplify, Join, Move, Disconnect
  5. Areas: Mirror (Who needs this?), join, multipolygon

Add headlines:

Possible other tasks: Work on more Menu Bugs, fix #11914, ...

File menu is good.

I think "save to file" is less frequently used than "Download"/"Upload" groups. What about Layers,Download,Upload,Save,System order?

Replying to openstreetmap.org-user-d1g:

We would need to add tracking statistics for really knowing that ;-).

But I agree that Save is more like an expert use and most basic users will use the download/upload actions more. Advanced users will know the shortcuts if they need an action regularly.

I don't think that anybody really uses File -> Download or File -> Upload, since both icons are by default in the toolbar and used very often. While it is more likely to use the file menu for save or save as. Therefore it is useful to have the save group above the download/upload group.
